#48 - Boston Red Sox (25-22) at Toronto Blue Jays (19-28)

Tuesday, May 21, 2019 | 7:07 pm
Rogers Centre | Toronto, Ontario

Eduardo Rodriguez (4-2, 4.89, 1.42) vs. Marcus Stroman (1-6, 2.95, 1.29)


Much controversy came before the start of yesterday's series opener as Vlad Guerrero Jr. wasn't inserted into the lineup for a nationally-televised holiday game, which was won in a rout by the Red Sox.  The Blue Jays look to take advantage of most of the attention being placed on the Raptors tonight and come up with a better performance in the second of a four-game series. 

Marcus Stroman takes the ball for the Jays against Eduardo Rodriguez -- just look at their records, it would (on paper) make more sense for Stroman to be the 4-2 pitcher and Rodriguez the 1-6 pitcher.  Just shows you the true worth of wins in today's baseball.

One roster move to announce:

Eric Sogard is still out with a sprained thumb.

Hopefully tonight's game is a lot less controversial and Vlad loosens the pressure by beating the shit out of Rodriguez's fastballs.


You all probably remember the Marcus Stroman HR against the Braves a couple years ago, but who is the only other pitcher to hit a HR for the Blue Jays?


This is your "#FreeVlad" game threat.
